IL-15 IDOT Construction in Mt. Vernon

The city of Mount Vernon, in coordination with the Illinois Department of Transportation, would like to alert motorists traveling on Illinois 15 (Broadway) between S. 22nd Street and S. 15th Street of upcoming lane restrictions. 
The lane restrictions will be in place beginning at 7 am Tuesday, May 26, at and ending July 3.
The lane restrictions will be in place to allow the city’s contractor to remove the old paint from the Zadock Casey Middle School pedestrian overpass and repaint the metal portions of the bridge. The project will also include work to the staircase sections of the bridge.
Please follow the traffic control setup and use caution while driving through the work zone.
